I think that's all inclusive of every expense including special care for the child, auto expenses for the roller, and 20 days/month of Wagyu beef for 2.

I agree. Just because the OP is spending far more than most here.... I don't see that as an issue at all. (Others might, but that's mostly sour grapes.)

I just have a 'thing' about people starting a debate with a question, and then never returning to it.

Of course. Set the ball rolling. Let it develop on it's own. Then report it as a
story... genius, lol

p.s. Almost as creative as reporting (3 - 4 times a week) that Google have a new doodle on their homepage :roll:

The initial statement did mention the single biggest outlay was rent, so I think this isn't too relevant in the context if it's the case.

I don't begrudge people spending vast amounts of money that mortals can't afford but don't then complain about it. It's like all the basketball or NFL players reported recently going into bankruptcy, no sympathy.

I think we should invite the OP to our little 'gathering of eagles'. Sounds like she can pay for all the drinks quite easily.

I don't think that I'd return to a thread (or perhaps forum) where I got such response as the first several she got!

She did the same on the only other post she's made, where all she got was 100% pure constructive help.

Some people are just born takers I suppose.
